Our very first gig was at the Blues Festival in Delft in 2016, we were booked in ‘De Koperen Kat’. It turned out to be a local beer brewery in an old industrial complex outside of Delft. We were stunned by the place, a bar that is surrounded by the brewery, the big copper kettles behind the bar, as if the beer is brewed on the spot when you order!

The stage was made outside in a big door opening, protected from the cold with plastic(!). It was in February, so actually it was freezing, especially for the drummer. But we were eager to play, and despite the cold, from the first note, the band was on fire!

It was a great start for us, we only started a few months before, were completing our EP ‘No Cure No Pay’ and featured already in a great blues festival.

Weeks later, Hank Six and Ron joined to work on material, and while drinking some heavy beer from ‘De Koperen Kat’ we came up with the jumpy shuffle ‘Copper Cat Blues’. After some nice additions by the rest of the band our first song was complete, inspired by great beer. Of course the song could not be left out of the new cd ‘Electrifying’!

The story of Electrifying

In front of our house there is a small power station, providing the power to our small city. One evening, as I was hanging on the couch and I looked out of the window, I saw a beautiful red sky behind the power station, which was a enchanting sight!

So I ran out of the house with my camera and took a few shots. After I’d put the best shot on Facebook with the title ‘Electrifying’, Hank Six came up with the idea to use it for the cd.

Some time later we were rehearsing, suddenly Hank and Karel were working on a hypnotizing tune. The drums played along and I started humming until we came to a refrain. Our title song for the cd Electrifying was born!

Fortunately mostly we record our rehearsals, as we did that time, so later we finished the lyrics for Electrifying.

The picture, the song and the cd, we think it goes together very well and fits The Silver Dimes (as well as the rest of the cd)!
